Project summary

FLOATING is the new performance of Art Vouveau’s theatre group. It is an original silent work that will result from a collaboration among “A Festival in Samothrace” (Greece), “Buffer Fringe Festival” (Cyprus) and “M.I.M. Festival” (France). The performance is inspired by true stories of people who live in secluded arias. Art Vouveau will work on the issues of rural life, loneliness, nature and climate risks. FLOATING will be constructed of performing material composed purely during the festival’s three residency programs. As a result, stories of people from three different countries who experience isolation will interconnect and find their way into the final silent performance.

Art Vouveau

Biography: Art Vouveau Theatre Group, based in Athens Greece, was founded in 2013 by Tassos
Dimitropoulos, Thanasis Megalopoulos, Phivos Symeonidis and Danai Tikou. The four founders - actors and friends – share a common vision about theatre which is the formation of a theatrical dialect that transcends speech through physicality and that is able to move the audience in the most unexpected ways. The group’s artistic work springs from a fusion of references such as silent movies, physical and mask theatre, german expressionism, commedia del’ arte, film noir, contemporary dance, literature and multimedia. Another distinctive feature of Art Vouveau ‘s performances is live music, which sets the rhythm for their physicality on stage. Since their beginning, they have developed teaching methods related to their work, addressed to various ages and backgrounds, and they consider their workshops as an integral part of their research.
